Car navigation system led tourist into supermarket



A US tourist's trip through Bavaria ended with an unexpected visit to a supermarket when his car's navigation system led him straight through the store's doors.

The car only came to a stop when the Vietnam war veteran, from Torpedo, Washington State, crashed into a row of shelves.

The man, who has not been named but was celebrating his 68th birthday the same day, told police in the town of Schwarzenbach that he had relied entirely on the automatic navigation system as he did not know the area.

He added he did not notice the doors of the supermarket looming before him until he had crashed through them.

The American has been told he will have to foot the bill for the damage caused.
